Correction: An earlier version of this article stated that Jasmine is 22-years-old. The article has since been changed to her correct age of 25.
The Calgary Police Service has provided an update on the mother and daughter who went missing from Calgary a week ago.
In the initial release, CPS stated that 25-year-old Jasmine Lovett and 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson (who’s last name, in the Wednesday release, was incorrectly stated as the same as her mother’s) had not been seen since Tuesday, April 16.
A call was put out to the public in the hopes of finding someone with information on their whereabouts, and now the Calgary Police Service has provided an update stating that they are now treating the disappearances as a potential double homicide.
“The Calgary Police Service has been unable to find any evidence confirming that 25-year-old Jasmine Lovett or 22-month-old Aliyah Sanderson are alive,” the Thursday release stated.
“The last place anyone saw either of them was in Cranston on the evening of Tuesday, April 16, 2019, and the last activity on Jasmine’s financial accounts was two days later. There have been no signs of life since.”
The release also stated that police currently have a suspect in custody, and, given that the suspect and the potential victims are known to each other, do not believe the alleged incident to have been random in nature.
Lovett and Sanderson are both from Calgary’s Cranston neighbourhood, and police are working with other agencies to search Cranston and the Bragg Creek area for evidence.
Bragg Creek residents are asked to check their properties for anything suspicious, and anyone who may have information on the situation is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service’s non-emergency number at 403-266-1234.
